“Every now and then a photographer comes along whose images become a quintessential signature of time and place, culture and style. Nobody in Sydney captured the ’80s and ’90s quite like Robert. More than subject matter alone, it is the mood and spirit that he somehow seizes through his lens that fully evoke in a single glance the creative zeitgeist, heady attitude and brash style of those two decades before the world forever changed.” Mark Cavanagh
“Robert’s photos evoke memories of freedom, hedonism and madness. Photos can make sense of the past or force you to remember difficult times with renewed fondness. In this ‘selfie’ age I worry we won’t ever see these kinds of photos in the future because they have a particular resonance. Such photos are of course about being there and Robert was there.” Boy George
“In London Robert used to stay on at the events, after the other photographers had left, to mingle with the guests. He captured some quite interesting and intimate photographs.” Bryan Ferry
